Club America will be looking to maintain pressure on league leaders Cruz Azul with another win on Saturday when they face Necaxa at the Estadio Azteca in Liga MX.

After coming third in the Apertura, the Eagles are on course to post a better season in the Clausura, with nine wins and just two losses from 12 games.

They trail table-toppers Cruz Azul by just two points in the race for the league title and have won their last five games consecutively.

Snapping a disastrous run of nine games without a win, Necaxa beat Juarez in their last game to bring their season back on track.

The victory lifted the side from the bottom of the barrel and induced some hope back into the team.

However, they're still some way off from qualifying for the Reclassification, and must replicate their end-of-Apertura form to stand a chance.

Last year, Los Rayos found themselves in a similar situation but restored some pride by winning their last five games of the season and finishing 10th.
